Venkman Stantz Spengler Paranormal Studies

I was checking out the latest offering from UK based Last Exit To Nowhere and stumbled upon an excellent Ghostbusters themed T-Shirt. Last Exit To Nowhere did not go the traditional “cartoony” route, like this Threadless T-Shirt, instead, they went sophisticated. Venkman Stantz Spengler Paranormal Studies features not only great typography but also has green glow in the dark ink, something that the die hard fans of Ghostbusters can appreciate.

Inspired by the Columbia University Paranormal Studies team in the first part of the film Ghost Busters. (The reason Ernie Hudson’s character Winston Zeddemore isn’t featured in this particular design is because he joined the team after they had left University when Ghost Busters was already established).

Venkman Stantz Spengler Paranormal Studies is available now from Last Exit To Nowhere for £18 ($28).

Co-Tee TV Episode 72: Fantastic Fur Face Boy, Vaughn de Heart and a French Lesson

In this episode of Co-Tee TV I wear The Fantastic Fur Face Boy and review the Les Gens Courageux by Vaughn de Heart, a brand that was born out of one persons love for fashion and a single random moment.

Fur Face Boy sent me an insane amount of T-Shirts from their Series 3 Line. I will be featuring the shirts throughout Co-Tee TV Episodes 70-79 so definitely keep an eye out for even more Fur Face Boy in the coming weeks! See Episode 70 of Co-Tee TV for the Fur Face Boy full review.

Coty’s Thoughts:

Les Gens Courageux by Vaughn de Heart. Pros: Les Gens Courageux comes packaged in a large custom black Vaughn de Heart plastic bag and is further wrapped in a separate plastic package (great way to protect the T-Shirt during the shipment). This V-Neck shirt is wonderfully soft and is nicely form fitting. I love that the neck hole is not extremely wide and long like many V-Necks that I have experienced in the past, instead it is just right. The single color, black print on the front features excellent typography and the print itself is not too think. Each Vaughn de Heart shirt comes packaged with a Vaughn de Heart drawstring canvas bag for free. This is definitely a nice surprise for anyone that orders from Vaughn de Heart. Also included in the package was a Vaughn de Heart sticker. Cons: I wasn’t the biggest fan of the print on the left sleeve since it was a bit thick. I also thought that the print on the front was enough as is, since the simplicity and message of the front is what makes the shirt a solid pick. Price: $13 but you can save 10% off your order by using the coupon code “COTY” at checkout.

FixPix Icon: For The Guy That Loves Pink

It takes a special kind of guy to wear pink. The kind of guy that oozes confidence and is very self-assured about himself is often the type brave enough to sport a pink T-Shirt. The pink T-Shirt wearer is not afraid of ridicule. The pink T-Shirt wearer is a brave soul with an impeccable taste for fashion. A guy that wear a pink T-Shirt does not mind eyeballs starring and fingers point, instead, he embraces those things. Having said all of that, it takes an extraordinary man (not just a special man) to wear a pink T-Shirt with a set of teeth and three popping eyeballs.

If you are that man then I salute you.

FixPix Icon is available now from eBoy for $40.

And in case you’re wondering, this design is based on the awesome iPhone game, FixPix. The eyeball and teeth design on the front of this T-Shirt resembles the icon for the game. Check it out here and download it from the App Store for $1.99.

Hey Ladies, Check Out Palomaya!

Once in a great while I get pitches from indie tee brands that make shirts especially for the ladies. Now, me being a dude, I tend to stay away from posting shirts specifically for ladies. However, there are exceptions like Lady Umbrella. California based Palomaya is one of those exceptions. The brand, which was started by Lorena Musselman,was founded as a means to express the Latina and American culture within her. As a former marketing executive, Lorena has a solid understanding of the Latin American markets and is hoping to build on that to further Palomaya the brand.

Palomaya currently has 3 T-Shirt designs available at their online shop, with each being fun and vibrant without being too girly. The intricate and edgy Day of the Dead, looks like it’s the perfect shirt for any girl with a tad of spicy attitude, and it’s actually my favorite of the bunch. The Palomaya Dove tee sort of reminds me of a sign that I would see at the top of a trendy high end bakery – it’s got a light and fluffy vibe that I dig.

All three of the Palomaya designs are priced at $19.99 a piece and are available now for purchase!

Andy Vs. Apple

A few months ago I featured Exploded Andy, a shirt from the guys that brought us some of my favorite Exploded tees, including Exploded 128, Exploded Phone and iSteamMac. After a string of Apple centric T-Shirts we now get two Android happy shirts in a row! What is an Apple fanboy like me to do about this?!

Of course, spin it and interpret it as only an Apple mega fan could! And it is for that reason that I actually really enjoy this shirt, which was designed by illustrator Chris Bishop.

Some might see this shirt as a pro Android tee. You might see Andy breaking loose and attacking the Apple way. Not me. No way! To me, Andy, that green Andoid character is much like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man character from Ghostbusters. Big, fat, and slow. Sound familiar? If so, because those are all characters that both the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and the Android OS and its various handsets have in common. Think Droid X. Big and slow. Yuck.

And at the end of the day, what happened to the Stay Puft Mashmallow Man? He died a horrible death. Apple might not have proton packs to destroy big and fat Andy, but what they do have is even better. It’s called Rabid Apple Fans. Myself included.

To me, I see here Apple fighting quite valiantly. They are the good guys. They are fighting the big battle against the fat and ugly Marshmallow known as Andy.  Fight that fight, Apple. Keep on fighting.

Andy Vs. Apple is available now in T-Shirt and poster form. Both the T-Shirt and posters are priced at $19 a piece.
